 Remote Desktop TCP or UDP? Port #?

Dear all,

Remote desktop use TCP or UDP?
What the port it use? Can I change the port #?
If my computer is behind a Windows2000 Server NAT, Can I remote control my
computer via Internet?
Can I share than one computers' desktop, that behind Windows2000 Server NAT?

Sorry for my poor English and many questions.

 Remote Desktop TCP or UDP? Port #?

TCP, 3389.

The port number can be changed at the RD Host, but:

The executable client can be used with changed ports.

The /tsweb ActiveX client cannot be used with changed ports.

There's a KB article about how to change the port at the host, and how to
specify it at the client (servername:port)

The best option for multiple machines behind a nat/router, is to enable VPN
access through that nat/router--then you don't need to worry about mapping
multiple ports, etc.

Can you setup remote desktop or Terminal Services Client 
to send strictly in TCP and use no UDP at all?

I think the problem I am having is UDP is blocked by our
VPN so I need to try and use strickly TCP.
